Leader Cam Broten Receives Massive Endorsement At Sask NDP Convention

Saskatchewan NDP gives leader 98.7 per cent approval at party convention

MOOSE JAW, Sask. – The leader of Saskatchewan’s Opposition has received an overwhelming endorsement at his party’s convention in Moose Jaw.

NDP delegates voted 98.7 per cent to approve Cam Broten’s leadership on Saturday.
The leadership review by secret ballot was required by the party’s constitution. 

Broten says the party will continue to focus on what is important to Saskatchewan families, including health care and education.

A detailed platform will be released closer to the next provincial election expected for 2016.
The Saskatchewan NDP currently has nine seats.

“I’m very happy to have the strong support of the party in the vote that we had,” said Broten.
“I feel we’ve made a lot of progress over the last year.”

Broten said in addition to health and education, the party will focus on what he called a “sense of entitlement” that has taken hold with the Saskatchewan Party government, pointing to expense scandals in the recent spring sitting.

He said people raise those issues to him as he travels throughout the province.

“Members are excited and looking forward to carrying on the work in local communities,” he said. “It’s been a really good time for us as a party here this weekend reflecting on the hard work that we’ve done last year, the building that we’ve done and really looking ahead to the work that we have to do.”

I hope this gets posted as I do bring up a legitimate point.
I agree Cam Broten is a much better choice for NDP leader compared to the former chosen disaster of a leader known as Dwain Lingenfelter.

However, Cam Broten and the NDP faithful need to be realistic. They won't win the upcoming 2016 Sask provincial election against the very popular Brad Wall and Sask Party.

All Cam Broten can do is fight against losing his 9 existing seats and maybe regain some lost seats.

So, my question is will Cam Broten still remain as NDP leader after the 2016 election or will he be required to step down so the NDP can do another So Called rebuilding of the party?
